and his name was barack obama. four years later he is president, he became president of the united states. what are your ambitions? >> well, you know, it is very flattering but i don't put myself in the same league with president obama. >> he is quite a unique talent. i am going to be mayor of san antonio as long as the voters will have me. my tenure would end in 2017 so i will be there and run for reelection and be there, if i do a great job then i will look around and see what is possible, of course the challenge is that we are in texas, texas is very red state, we have 29 statewide offices and it is 29 to zero in terms of republicans and democrats, so we will see. we will see. >> joaquin, part of what we learned in your brother's speech last night was that your grand jury immigrated from mexico. >> right. >> never got past the fourth grade, both of you went to stanford and have law degrees from harvard. how did that happen? you know, our grandmother and everybody in our family worked very hard, so that we could have the very best opportunity possible and, you know, as julian told the s

as president of the united states. [applause] look around you, everyone. this has been the most diverse, most inclusive convention ever held anywhere in the united states of america. [applause] a convention not just of symbolism, but of substance. this is the first time that a major party platform recognizes marriages equality as a basic human right. [applause] and this is the reflection of who we are as a party and who we can be as a nation. because as democrats, as americans, whenever we have opened up our party and our country, whenever we have opened up our doors for more of our people, whenever we deepen our democracy and renew our commitment to equal justice under the law, we have grown stronger as a nation. last week, in tampa, we were promised hard truths. they were right about one thing -- the truth was hard to find. [applause] that is why they did not talk about their plan to cut taxes for millionaires by raising taxes on middle-class families with kids, on your family, by $2,000. they did not talk about their plan to replace the guarantee of medicare with a coupon, with a voucher t

that may be a problem is if elizabeth warren wins the united states senate seat as i certainly hope she does and the senate is almost in equilibrium. if he were to leave the senate and then that seat would be up for election at the next cycle and scott brown would want to come back and run for it, the prospect he might be able to re-claim the seat because he's a popular guy in massachusetts might weigh heavily on whether or not you could take away a popular democratic senator. i hate to do it because i would love to see john kerry as secretary of state. this is the second tier consideration you have to think about. >> cenk: that's a really interesting dynamic. we'll talk more about that because i'm curious to see who others would do at the table in a similar situation. we also have vice president joe biden coming up soon as well. come right back here to current's coverage of the democratic national convention. america. bringing jobs home now. >> cenk: we're back on current's coverage of the democratic national conventi

. [ applause ] >> i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states, and i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. now, folks, in tampa a few days ago, we heard a lot of talk, all about how the president and the democrats don't really believe in free enterprise and individual initiative, how we want everybody to be dependent on the government, how bad we are for the economy. this republican narrative, its alternative universe says that every one of us in this room who amounts to anything, we're all completely self-made. one of the greatest chairmen the democratic party ever had, bob strauss, used to say that every politician wants every voter to believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself. but as strauss then admitted, it ain't so. we democrats, we think the country works better with a strong middle class, with real opportunities for poor folks to work their way into it, where the relentless focus on the future with business and government actually working together to promote growth and broadly share prosperity. you see, we believe that we
